boycott of iran. the u.s. government has exempted japan and ten other countries from its financial sanctions against iran. the u.s. says these nations have significantly reduced their imports of iranian crude oil. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton announced the didition in a statement tuesday. the statement says japan and ten european countries, including france and germany, will be exempted from the measure. the u.s. enacted a law last year that effectively bars financial institutions from its domestic market if they do business with the iranian central bank. the move is aimed at blocking countries from importing crude oil from iran. japan imports nearly 10% of its oil from iran. it has been urging the u.s. to exempt japanese firms from the sanctions. a senior u.s. official says japan reduced its crude oil purchases from iran by 15% to 22% in the latter half of 2011, despite the accident at the fukushima daiichi nuclear plant. the official adds that japan understands the purpose of the u.s. law. japanese companies are having to adjust for the changes. ai uchida joins me with

. the concern that so many of us have is that the allegations against mr. allen are -- are, unfortunately, not isolated in alaska. we have had a great deal of concern about sex trafficking within the state with young native women, and i look at what has happened with the bill allen case and the government's failure to prosecute bill allen sends an awful message, just an awful message to -of-preside predators that are out there. if you are a young native american, have don't stand a chance when victimized by a person of political influence and financial means. and we worry about the situation of sex trafficking, and, again, if an individual doesn't feel that there is any recourse out there, it makes the situation pretty tough. so this goes even beyond the bill allen investigation. i know that you've got good folks within the fbi that are working these issues. i've met with them. i've talked with them, but, again, i think this is something that needs further attention to detail, and if you can give me your assurance that you will look into that, i would certainly appreciate it. >> yes, and

's using the bicycle. i'm told that the netherlands is very typical on this. we have more women on bikes then -- than men. and the most intense users are girls from the age of 12 to 18 and that's easy to explain because i once was a girl of that age and to me, mabika was my ticket to freedom. i didn't want my mom and dad bringing me by car somewhere and then say well, i'll pick you up at 6:00. i go on my bike and i'll try to make it at 6:00. most of the time i was there. 6:30. and then later you can see at all ages, women still use the bicycle more than then -- men, in their 30's to 50's. and how far do they go? still, the girls are top of this list and they use the bicycle for seven kilometers per day. and then you can see that it goes down fast but still, oh, here men are cycling further. so the men that are using the bicycles cycle further than the women and that is explained by the fact that women mostly work near their homes and men commute over a longer distance. we did a survey on emotion that people felt when they were traveling -- were driving the streets or riding and we asked
